Cabbage Venison Lettuce Wraps With Fresh Herbs #SundaySupper

Turkey cabbage lettuce wraps-3

Lettuce wraps stuffed with venison, cabbage and a sprinkling of fresh herbs scream spring to me! After a long winter with plenty of snow, we are so ready for spring here in the DC area. My Sunday Supper team is doing a ‘Stuff, Roll and Wrap” theme and I am bringing my venison lettuce wraps. I love lettuce wraps and have experimented many different combos! They are specially great when I want to detox or eat low carb.   I am currently on vacation in Arizona touring the Grand Canyon and I know I will be making a lot of lettuce wraps next week after I get back.  It’s the perfect dish to help me get back to my pre -vacation weight: Healthy meat wrapped in lettuce leaves ! This venison lettuce wrap infused with fresh parsley, cilantro and ginger is one of my favorites! Venison is a hot favorite in our home and we are fortunate to have a family friend who give us a whole deer every year! Venison is a healthy, lean, red meat which is lower in fat than other red meats. Thanks to deer who move so much they don’t store too much fat! I make the venison mixture ahead of time and then stuff the lettuce with the meat! Super yummy, healthy and perfect for that time you want to cut calories and eat low carb.  My Venison lettuce wraps are paleo, low carb and gluten free!

  1. Sue, this sounds delicious… I’m not a fan of venison, so perhaps I could use beef?

  2. Oh yum! These look fantastic! I love the idea of using a different meat… I may try with kangaroo which is more easily available down here and tastes closer to deer than to beef. :-)

  3. I purchased a gorgeous cabbage at the farmers market yesterday… now I know what I will make.

  4. What a great idea for a wrap! I love everything you have going on in this recipe!!

  5. Mmmm…venison! Now you’re speaking my language ;) These look divine!

  6. I’ve gotten lots of delicious inspiration for new lettuce wraps today! And yours look fantastic, too!!!

  7. I’ve been experimenting with lettuce wraps over the past few weeks. I love this “southwestern” flavored combo. I’ll be adding this one to my arsenal.

  8. I have started enjoying some different meats, I would love to try these lettuce wraps they look so good!!

  9. I don’t come around venison too often, but these look delish.

  10. Sue, I’ve been loving all your photos of your trip on social media. Absolutely beautiful! I’d love to visit the Grand Canyon someday. I adore eating lettuce wraps and yours look so healthy, vibrant and delicious. I’ve never had venison but there’s always a first time for everything. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  11. Hope you had a great time visiting The Grand Canyon. These sound so tasty, and unique for you to use venison – we don’t see it a lot in California except for restaurants.

  12. I am envious that you have venison. It’s so hard to come by here. Great way to use it in this wrap. So light, healthy, and flavorful.

  13. Hope you’re enjoying Arizona, Sue! My folks used to live in Arizona and somehow I never made it to the Grand Canyon. It’s still on my list. I love that we both did lettuce wraps !! Love yours :-)

  14. I haven’t had venison in years. This sounds lovely!!!

  15. Love how light and refreshing this looks for spring!

  16. This definitely isn’t your typical lettuce wrap, I like your creativity!

  17. You are so creative an healthy as always!! Love this!

  18. I’d love to have a venison supplier like yours! These look and sound great! Maybe lettuce wraps are a way for my kids to try fresh greens!

  19. This looks so amazing!! Why did I never think of doing this before? Awesome!
